Big Agnes Tiger Wall 2 for the higher budget model.

REI Half Dome 2+ for the lower price. It's a little heavier but it's a mansion for 1 person and gear. Mine didn't do too well with a wet, soupy snow load on it, but the snow was really heavy. Not sure what to expect out of them. Otherwise it's been awesome.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

I have a 1p tent but if not going far I’d be looking at 2p for the space to store gear

For a floored tent, take a long, hard look at Nemo. I have a 3 season Hornet which is an incredible enclosure in many ways. Nemo also carries some of the best 4 season tents out there if you want to go that far.

Here’s a short VID about the Hornet

Depends if your concerned about weight and how much you want to spend

I've been looking at the ellis canvas Prarie tent.  It looks super easy and sturdy.
